How do I transfer User data?

My wife's computer is all messed up. For reasons way too complicated to explain, she uses my ID on her computer even tho she has her own. We would like to resolve this by returning her to her real, original, ID. The question is how do we move/transfer/copy the data from my ID to her ID?

Bobland has computer a; wife has computer b.

Bobland has an account in wife's computer b, most likely with administrative functions. (Did she forget pswd?)

Backup wife's user data to a safe place. Copy Bobland's user data in wife's computer b and replace wife's user data. This has to be done from within the account that has administrative privileges.

Don't want to transfer user files with easy transfer
I migrated to a new machine using easy transfer. I copied my files (user and data) to a hard drive that I installed in my new machine. I copied everything back and it all worked fine. Over time (the last year) I have altered my config and even wiped the OS and did a clean install. My problem...
